3:03 am
resolution was really just a pretext for military intervention it was aimed at a domestic audience back here in the united states and the ambassador really came out hard against the united states now that's not what the resolution says as many european members of the council pointed out there is no authorization for military intervention in the resolution itself in fact several the united states allies asked that the united states soften its language so that it couldn't be interpreted in that way the word peaceful was added to the resolution several times but still russia and venezuela as well continued to describe the u.s. actions as a form of colonialism and interventionism in latin america. but there are i don't mean what saul call vidis we'll leave it a show an army to penetrate into it as well and very dirty super bowl city this is they're saying that right now there are thousands of innocent on this earth this is

3:05 am
his government and hoping that there's a crack there the question is what will happen if and when he tries to go back to venezuela many are concerned that he could be arrested the venezuelan ambassador was asked about that and said that the supreme court is considering that very question and how to respond when he does try to come back to the country in the past they had opportunities to arrest him and they did in the u.s. special representative on venezuela said that he believed that was because there would be a popular uprising if in fact that happened and he warned that if something were to happen to go i don't when he returned the world would react as well. al jazeera is christensen amy at the united nations for us thank you kristen. well north korea is accusing the united states of a wasting an opportunity to strike a nuclear deal president donald trump has walked away from

a two day summit with ken doll and vietnam with no agreement he says he couldn't meet the north korean leader's demands to lift sanctions. if united states removes partial sanctions namely removes the articles of sanctions that hamper the civilian economy and the livelihood of our people in particular we will permanently and completely dismantle all of the nuclear material production facilities in the yard beyond area including plutonium and uranium in the presence of u.s. experts and by the joint work of technicians in both countries he was told me this proposal was the biggest denuclearization vision that we could take in the present state in relation to the current level of confidence between the d.p. r. k. and the united states. when he has more on what happened and hanoi. before the summit u.s. president donald trump tried to lower expectations of a deal with north korean leader kim jong un but the expectation was at the very least that the pair would sign some form of agreement on denuclearization or make
3:07 am

hello again i missed a reminder of the news this hour a u.s. led vote calling for a free and fair elections in venezuela has failed at the u.n. security council the draft included a push to get an aid which has been blocked at the border by venezuela's military both russia and china vetoed the voters. the u.s. and north korea failed to reach a deal in vietnam donald trump says talks were productive but the u.s. can also agree to lift all sanctions accuses washington of wasting an opportunity by rejecting its realistic proposal. israel's a tiny general says he plans to indict prime minister benjamin netanyahu in three separate corruption cases. has dismissed the allegations as the result of a politically motivated which. while the united nations says israel's crackdown on palestinian protesters in gaza last year may amount to war crimes u.n.
3:16 am
investigators say israeli soldiers intentionally opened fire on civilians. reports . almost a year palestinian protesters have gathered along the gaza israeli border fence to demand the right to return to their ancestral lands controlled by israel israeli soldiers have shot at them with live ammunition the un has investigated the deaths of one hundred eighty nine palestinians killed during the first nine months of the protest. it found that israeli soldiers deliberately shot at children disabled protesters paramedics and journalists it says their actions may amount to war crimes clearly this life fire was used were completely unlawfully where these people were not posing any kind of threat to life or to limb of any israeli security force or any israeli civilian. israel's dismissed the un report it says it has a right to defend itself from what it calls violent attacks in a statement to prime minister benjamin netanyahu said israel rejects outright the
3:17 am
u.n. human rights council report the council is setting new records for hypocrisy and mendacity out of an obsessive hatred of israel the only democracy in the middle east. the un also criticized the palestinian group hamas which controls gaza the not doing more to stop protestors flying burning kites over the gaza fence israel says they cause fires and damage property. the u.n. believes it's identified some of the israeli snipers responsible for killing palestinian protesters that information will be given to the u.n. high commissioner for human rights you could then pass it to the international criminal court israel's not a member of the i.c.c. but should do soldiers travel abroad they could face arrest victoria gate and be al-jazeera. the new york times is reporting that the us president ordered his former chief of staff to ground his son in law and senior adviser jared krishna
3:18 am
a top secret security clearance last year the report says donald trump overruled concerns by intelligence officials and the white house's top lawyer this prompted the then white house chief of staff john kelly to write an internal memo about how he'd been ordered to do it by roslyn jordan is live for us in washington d.c. rose walk us through this report. well according to the new york times and as i'm most of our viewers will recall the question about jericho security clearance first became public about this time of year ago when there was a controversy involving another white house staffer during that other person's controversy including allegations of spousal abuse it became public that jerry security clearance was a temporary clearance now when those chief of staff at the time john kelly found out about all of these temporary security clearances he had them all downgraded
3:19 am
until their security background checks could be completed gerri kushner's background check was said to be quite complicated because he had not been forthcoming about some of his business dealings about some of his meetings with foreign officials and foreign business persons things that he should have revealed in his security clearance application and when it finally came to last may twenty eight teen according to the york times the f.b.i. as well as an investigation inside the white house legal office determined that he should get a top secret or clearance that would allow him to have access to the nation's and most sensitive information however the president decided that he wanted jarrett cushion or to have a top secret clearance that's not the highest level but he wanted him to have that anyway and so he ordered john calley against john kelly's advice to give him that
3:20 am
security clearance and so we can only presume although he kelly is not speaking tonight we can only presume that he wrote that internal memo essentially to cover himself in case there was any question about whether jarrett question or has the appropriate security clearance to be working in the white house runs i believe that president trying to in january said he had no role in and requesting that carrots what's happened there. well he was interviewed by the new york times in the oval office back in january and you can watch as some of the video of that interview at the new york times website but he was very explicit when he was asked that it was not something he was involved in he essentially lived the impression that this was bureaucratic go work and that he didn't have time to be involved in such matters and also trying to lay to rest any questions about whether he might have been bending the rules for his son in law or for his daughter
3:21 am
a volga who is also working as a senior advisor in the white house however this report is strongly contradicts the president's contention that he was not involved in the process and we should point out for our international viewers that the u.s. president does have the right to grant a security clearance to any person who may he or she chooses however it's usually left up to the bureaucratic process and usually the president will follow those recommendations because again it keeps you from having stories such as what's being reported on the front page of the new york times tonight out of there is rotten in jordan and washington d.c. for us thank you. at least ten people have been killed in an attack apparently targeting the home of a judge in somalia's capital police say a car bomb was detonated and a prop to assassinate. the chief judge of somalia's appeals course after the blast

3:23 am

3:24 am
prime minister india's prime minister has been very tight lipped about the situation he's only alluded to it in general thursday at interactive form across the country addressing party workers and volunteers in the render movie stated how he believes the public should be reacting to the situation let's have a listen to that seem a part of the country's brave soldiers are showing their strength at the border and across the border to the country is one today and we're standing with the soldiers . how hard it is here now samarra provided we have faith in the ability of our forces and that's why it's very important that nothing affects the morale of our soldiers otherwise our enemies will have the upper hand. now that's being seen as a direct dig at the opposition the opposition party stood shoulder to shoulder with the government ever since the february fourteenth attacks on indian troops in the needy administered kashmir then on ones day after the pakistani incursions and the capture of its pilot they openly criticize most of these handling of the situation
